Did anyone get the license plate number?

October 27, 2011

Motor vehicle injuries, pain and suffering are eligible for compensatory damages, even if the vehicle leaves the scene … even if noone got the license plate number at the scene … even if the responsible vehicle is uninsured. In fact, if the liability insurance policy of the wrongdoing vehicle does not provide adequate coverage to the seriously injured claimant, there are other recourses to pursue. Typical motor vehicle litigation involves properly insured cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles. Within the general field of New York motor vehicle crash litigation, there are cases commonly referred to by the legal bar as SUM cases, or supplementary motorist claims; also UM, or uninsured motorist claims and underinsured motorist claims. These types of cases can protect injured crash victims, sometimes the vehicle occupant and sometimes a pedestrian. Special filing requirements, prompt notice to police and strict time limits are involved. Attorneys who represent motor vehicle injury clients should be able to guide you.
